LP, Vinyl record album

The lasting recorded legacy of Jimmy Walker – and material that shows a much sharper, much smarter side of his personality than his character on Good Times! Walker's got a fast-talking, bad-rapping approach that's definitely rooted in the party record scene of the 60s – yet which is also turned here to deliver a bit more social commentary – maybe a bit of Bill Cosby wit filtered in to clean things up, as Walker turns his talents to 70s society on both sides of the tracks. Plenty of great stuff to sample here, including "The Black Prince Has Arrived" and "Show Biz", a good bit on blacksploitation films – and other titles include "The Apollo", "Suburbia", "Caucasians & Other White Folks", and "The Ghetto".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Douglas, Early 60s/Early 70s. Near Mint-
70's issue of material that was too raunchy to be released in the 60's. This is Lenny Bruce at his finest, with some of the best little bits that made him famous (including many of the ones that were used in the movie Lenny). Good live recordings, and a nice cover featuring Lenny in a mug shot. LP, Vinyl record album

Struggle
Black America/Buddah, Early 70s. Near Mint-
Baldwin speaks on his thoughts, his writings, and art in general – in a rare recorded performance that goes beyond the scope of his usual fiction. There's no other backing, and the LP is a nice intimate moment with Baldwin, whose voice is as beautiful and haunting as his writings! LP, Vinyl record album

Ballots Or Bullets
First Amendment, Mid 60s. Very Good-
One of the better releases of the classic Ballots or Bullets speech by Malcolm. Issued by First Amendment Records, part of the Jamie/Josie group of labels. The quality is good, and the label indicates that Betty Shabazz got royalties from the album. Nice cover shot of Malcolm, too. LP, Vinyl record album
